Auckland Pistol Club currently hosts the prestigious Double Tap match at the Rotorua Pistol Club. Our own Auckland club grounds are working though a noise complaint issues caused by a new build neighbor.  The good news is that APC is open and on the mend. Centerfire matches are now possible again on one of our ranges. As the club continues to develop the remaining ranges will gradually reopen until we are a premier venue again.
